~  My upcoming books have covers!

UNHOLY BLUE  (December 2015)

THE BURNT BONES  (March 2016)



~  I am so excited to share the news! My publisher, Spencer Hill Press, had been acquired by Kampmann & Company. Spencer Hill joins Beaufort Books as a sister imprint to other Kampmann imprints. My books will be distributed by Kampmann’s distribution arm, Midpoint Trade. Yes, all my books will continue to be published with Spencer Hill Press, but now they will have more marketing muscle behind them.



~  My YA series, GRIFFIN RISING, has been optioned for film rights by producer Carmella Casinelli and actor/producer Geoff Stults. There will be more details to come, but for right now, this is one happy author!
